Advice on planting agapanthus

Posted: 24/03/2015 at 18:25

I expect your roots are pretty small sioned...?   So I would not overpot them. ,just enough to accommodate the roots and pot on as roots fill their pots.

Ok, Lyn, I would trim those roots then if you cannot pull it apart.  One thing though, if you have a fountain keep the Lily on the calm water side.  (just a word about your mum.  Gone through a similar thing lately with my mum but when funeral is over you will feel less agitated and have a calm sense of closure )

Well Denno

 you have some of the ingredients for a nice planting there. The grasses will associate well with hebes and heathers ( if they are the winter flowering types....that do well in alkaline soil)

maybe add a couple of pinks too.....for the foliage if nothing else, which is a nice blue colour.  A couple of lavendars too?  I think a tall grass at the back like miscanthus  morning light would be superb.  It has a light fountain like habit with fine narrow leaves
